About this Item

Commodore Charles G. Ridgely, commander of the American squadron on the Pacific Ocean during the years 1820 and 1821, requests remuneration for incurring "considerable expenses" in entertaining the then-recently deposed Viceroy of Peru, General Pezuela, and his son-in-law aboard the frigate Constellation. "The price of provisions is represented to have been enormous. Captain Clack certifies that, at the time when the Viceroy was received on board, flour was selling for one hundred dollars per barrel, and other articles proportionably high. . [The committee] believe that six thousand dollars would not be more than a fair allowance (pp. 3-4)." Government document: 26th Congress, 1st Session. Rep. No. 497. Ho. of Reps. 8vo. 4 pp. Removed from a nonce volume; inner edge a little irregular; two holes in inner margin, not touching text. Light foxing to first and final pages. Title-page with number inked in upper right corner by an early hand. Bookseller Inventory # 11645
